normalizing industrial policy 1
Normalizing industrial policy? (1)
  • “The necessary transition to a more sustainable, inclusive and resource-efficient economy will have to be supported by both horizontal and sectoral policies at all levels and will require strengthened European governance and social dialogue” [EC COM(2010)614, 4]
  • ”The present round of industrial policy will no doubt produce some modest successes – and a crop of whopping failures” (The Economist August 7th 2010, 56)

  • “Encouraging broad-based and inclusive growth does not imply a return to government-sponsored industrial policies, but instead puts the emphasis on policies that remove constraints to growth and create a level playing field for investment”
